TORTURE MIX

justine is writing a book on torture in iraq and scored a feature in the new issue of mother jones. she is also signed up for the hsa mix trade and was planning to share a mix of songs used in american military prisons. she pitched the mix idea to the magazine and now i can embed it in my blog below. please don't misjudge my lighthearted approach to the topic. i'm happy for my friend's success, but am also fully aware of what this mix represents. check back for a link to justine's story.

I ADORE DEBORAH FOR ETERNITY



a couple days ago
eternal sunshine for the spotless mind came in the mail & last night we went to go see m.gondry's deitch opening. it was super blown out, so instead we got drunk and went to lil' frankies. we ended up eating next to elijah wood & i thought it was a neat coincidence. so, this morning i decided to listen to radiolab's memory episode while making breakfast (here's the podcast) & they basically state that the premise behind the film is not fiction. also, ten second tom from 50 first dates
isn't so much a joke. it's sad to hear him re-watch the conducting footage.

please listen to this segment about musical language. it's real smart:

& here, again, is the do make say think intro from wordless music:
